Mangar Elk Floor Lift

The Mangar Elk is an emergency lifting device that uses an innovative air powered cushion designed to inflate and gradually lift a fallen person up off the floor.

Risk of injury to the carer is greatly reduced as the need to manual lift is no longer there.


​​​​​​The Elk lifting cushion operates at a low air pressure offering a stable and stress-free lift that can be performed with the assistance of one carer only.

The product is extremely compact making it ideal when someone has fallen in a confined space both indoors and out.

  • Reduces the risk of injury associated with manual handling
  • Helps a carer to lift fallen, but uninjured, persons safely and easily while maintaining their dignity
  • Can be used in restricted or remote locations where other lifting equipment may be impractical or unavailable
  • Easily portable for use on excursions etc.
  • Lifts up to 450kg
  • Powered by a small battery-operated portable air-supply
  • Compact for easy storage


Maximum user weight of 450kg

With a maximum user weight of 450kg (70 stone) the Elk can lift people of any size, weight and age and is particularly useful for lifting very large and bariatric people, minimising the risks associated with moving and handling for both the carer and client. If someone falls over they can shuffle on to the cushion, or be rolled on from the recovery position and assisted to sit upright.

Inflate with the touch of a button

The ELK is inflated at the touch of a button. There are 4 buttons on the hand control which are pressed in order to inflate each section of the cushion. Each button inflates the cushion a little higher. Most times only 3 buttons are required to inflate the cushion to a suitable height. The 4th button may be required for taller persons or persons with very limited mobility. Once the cushion has inflated to a suitable height and someone is supporting the individual from behind, the person is ready to stand from their seated position. Once the lift is complete, the ELK can be deflated, folded up and stored away tidily.
